We are trying to teach Blockette to be modest. This has involved her wearing a robe when she comes out of the shower instead of making a nakid dash from the bathroom to her bedroom.
Wouldn't you know it but the kid outgrew the durn thing? The nerve of the child.
Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a robe this time of year?
Because apparently kids only wear robes when it's cold out. Sigh.
So I tried to find some free instructions for making a robe online. I came up with this and this. Except it wasn't exactly what I wanted. Then I realized what I wanted was a smaller version of a rob I had bought back in the late 80's. It's so old that I got it from Pier One Imports back when they sold clothing. Anyone else but me remember that?
So I traced the robe and scaled it down a bit, but not too much because I didn't want to have to make another robe next year.
My bestie was even nice enough to let me go shopping in her fabric stash. I found this nice purple lightweight paisley stuff. It worked perfectly.
Please excuse the weird photo. Apparently we must twirl when I'm photographing clothing.
Blockette says she feels like she is wearing a kimono, in a good way. She's actually not too far off. It's really a lot like a summer kimono called a yukata.
